Achy Joints Give Warning
A creaky joint often predicts rain. It
may also mean that the kidneys are not
filtering the poisonous uric acid from the
blood. Bad backs, rheumatic pains, sore,
aching joints, headaches, dizziness and
urinary disorders are all effects of weak
kidneys and if nothing is done, there's
danger of more serious trouble. Use
Doan'a Kidney Pill*, the best recom

Although the tradition that new
members of congress, like children,
should be seen and not heard, is not
respected now as It was in former
days, rarely do freshmen of the house
make such an impression within a
week of their arrival as did Repre
sentative Venable of Mississippi, a
young man recently elected to suc
ceed the late Representative Wither
Rising to answer an attack fcy a
Texas Democrat upon the president's
advocacy of preparedness, young Ven
able delivered a speech that placed
him at once among the great orators
of congress and earned him the
plaudits of Democrats and Republicans
One of hia illustrations, empha
sizing the benefits of preparedness, is
still being repeated in the cloakrooms.
It has been my pleaure during my
lifetime," he said, "to be intimately
and personally acquainted with two dogs. One of them was a little rat
terrier who had a little tail curled over his back like a corkscrew.
"That little dog's life was one long sad wail of misery. He was kicked
by every iaan he met and whipped by every dog he ran across. I knew
another dog, a magnificent gentleman of his race. His great head reared
itself above his shoulders as the head of a lion. He was thewed and
sinewed like a gladiator, and his curved forelegs and stanch haunches spoke
of tremendous strength. Pie lived his life respected by dogs and men. I
owned him for five years and I caressed him when I felt like kicking him.
Why? He was a prince of the house royal, a gladiator of his kind and he

and his personal and property rights thoroughly respected
M'CREARY QUITS PUBLIC LIFE
After thirty-two of his seventy
five years spent in public service,
James B. McCreary, who recently re
tired from the governorship of Ken
tucky, announces that he is through
with public office.
Mr. McCreary served siK years
in the Kentucky legislature and waa
elected governor of the state in 1875
when he was thirty-two years old.
After that he was elected to the
house of representatives, where ho
served twelve years, and then was
transferred to the other end of the
capitol as a United States senator.
For several years after the expira
tion of his senatorial term he was a
private citizen, only to enter again
the political field as a candidate for
governor, and he is the only man on
record who was twice elected gov
ernor of Kentucky after a long lapse
"I look back on my first cam-
paign for governor with a great deal of pleasure," said Governor McCreary.
"It was that campaign that probably gave to the United State Supreme
court bench one of its most respected and valuable members. My opponent
in that fight was John Marshall Harlan. Not long after the election I had the
opportunity of recommending that President Hayes appoint Harlan to the
Supreme court bench."
SAVES INDIAN BABIES
A unique baby-saving campaign
launched by Cato Sells, commissioner
of Indian affairs, is attracting the at
tention of statesmen, educators,
churchmen and philanthropists in
every part of the country, for, Mr.
Sells declared, on the success of the
campaign depends the survival of a
Commissioner Sells sent a circu
lar letter to all superintendents and
other employees in the Indian service,
urging them to do their utmost to save
the lives of Indian babies. Three
fifths of the North American Indian
babies are dying in infancy on account
of neglect of ordinary sanitary treat
ment and lack of food, says Mr. Sells.
He declared that the Indian problem
cannot be solved with Indians, and
says that the race will become ex
tinct unless the United States awak
ens to the necessity of improving the
conditions under which Indian children
are born. He directs the employees of the Indian service to make thorough
investigations on the reservations to which they are detailed and spare no
efforts in teaching the doctrine of baby saving. Tribal funds are to be used
in formulating the work, if necessary.
MIYATOVICH'S BRAVE WORDS
Cheddo Miyatovich, Serbian diplo
matist and poet, who visited America
on a mission from his country declares
that until hope is dead Serbia will not
die. "Our friends speak of our nation
al tragedy," says he. "We are grateful
for their generous sympathy. But our
tragedy has not yet seen our teare,
nor shall it ever see them.
"Our women suffer silently oui
men die silently, we bear our sad bur
"Yet our tragedy is illumined by
the light of hope. We lost, in honest
struggle, all the territory of our king
dom which we raised up from ruins
by faithful love of national inheri
tance, by the self-sacrificing efforts of
generation after generation. But in
this the darkest hour of our country
history we have not lost faith in God
and his justice we have not lost faith
in ourselves, in our allies or in hu

Stork Is Partial to On Street in Towanda
PA.This town is all stirred up over the first real mystery it
ever has The seventh pair of twins to be born on Union street have
just arrived at the home of Samuel Cullan. Union street is not half a mile
long, and, therefore, everybody is
seriously asking and wanting to
Why the stork is so partial to
this particular street?
Local physicians having failed to
explain the mystery, the mayor has
addressed a communication to Dr.
Samuel G. Dixon, state commissioner
of health at Harrisburg, asking if
he or anybody in his department can
explain just why nothing but twins
are born in this short thoroughfare.
Union street is one of the driest a healthiest parts of town and a
survey conducted by local authorities has revealed that persons living in the
street average remarkably high health records. As far as most of the resi-
dents examined can recall they themselves, in addition to enjoying particu-
larly good health, all come of strong, healthy stock.
The authorities seized upon this as being the logical explanation of the
predominance of twins, but this theory was discarded when one of the last
women to be questioned, a Mrs. George Foran, was found to have been prac-
tically an invalid up to the time of the birth of twins a year ago. Since then
her health has improved rapidly.
Atmospheric tests have revealed that the air roundabout Union street
is somewhat freer from soot than in some other sections of the town, but
does not differ in any other particular from the atmosphere in other streets.
Therefore, the twins cannot be blamed on the climate
And, meanwhile, there is such a demand for residences along the
thoroughfare that 25 new houses are being erected.
Business Boom Follows Prohibition in Denver
COLO.Prohibition went into force in Colorado January 1. The
change in the life of the city noticeable since then bring smiles to the
faces of the "dry" and scowls to the features of the "wet." The leading
Denver stores report a remarkable 'n-
crease of business and an even more
marked improvement in collections.
Hundreds of credit accounts which
had been hanging over customers'
heads for years and had, in many
case*, been given up for lost by the
storekeepers, have been settled up
with the money which would have
flowed over the bar.
In eight savings banks deposits
increased $575,000 in the first month
of prohibition, and more tlu.n two
Bank clearings were $47,000,000 for
January, against $38,000,000 a year ago, and $37,000,000 two years ago.
Stores doing a business throughout the state report that the benefits
in the small towns and mining camps of throttling the rum demon are even
Leading credit men say that the store customers who were thrown out
of work by prohibition have almost uniformly found employment in some
other line and only an insignificant percentage has left the city.
But on the police court blotter the real story of prohibition is written.
Here are figures showing the number of arrests for the three principal
causes in the first month of 1915 and of 1916:

How New York's Big Army of Scrubwomen Exists
W YORKThe newspaper lobster-shift man, whose work takes him
the almost deseited skyscraper district of lower Manhattan at
three or four o'clock in the morning, sees a scettered flock of beshawled,
bent figures hurrying through the
streets on aged feet.
Their faces are gray and deep
lined, their hair is scant and plainly
combed, and one ungloved, gnarled
hand clutches the flap of the garment
which serves at once for overcoat
and hat, with grim determination.
These are the scrubwomen. Fif
teen thousand of them, it is estimated,
clean the stubborn tiling and polish
the imposing mahogany of the great
offices every night. Nine-tenths of
them are widows. Some of the younger have little children. Their earnings
average $3 a week. Where do they live and how do they exist?
A New York reporter has just answered that question. They live in
communal dwellings He entered one of these strange cooperative homes
of the very poor and found there instead of gloom and despair a lesson in
It was the top floor of an ancient, rickety residence in the lower East
side quarters, which had been vacated by a furrier and rag picker after
many years of activity there.
One room served as kitchen, dining room and parlor. The others wero
filled w.th beds set as close as possible All was aB neat as the traditional
pin. Around the red tablecloth In the combination kitchen, etc., the good
women of the household we're gathered. There were references to the rheu-
matism the unpleasantness of kneeling on wet stone floors these cold nights,
and various other "shop talk," but the prevailing air was that of wit and fun.
Jokes were cracked at their troubles and the sun of youth mi?ht almost
seem to smile on their aged countenances. One of the women acted as house-
keeper, managing the accounts, doing the frugal shopping, and making the
tea. Tea, tea and more teathat was the secret of their existence.
Seattle Jurors Mak Cards, Dice and Checkers
WASH Playing cards, dice and checkers, all of their own mak-
ing was the experience of a federal court jury. Deadlocked by the action
of one'member, the jurors called upon Bailiff Tobey for a deck of cards. The
request was refused, Bailiff Tobey no
tifying the juror that to comply with it
would be to violate the law.
Thereupon ten of the jurors pro
ceeded to build a deck of cards out of
the luncheon boxes in which they had
brought sandwiches to the jury room.
While four then proceeded to play
pitch, another member produced
enough lumps of sugar to make a set
Two more of the jurors *ore yei
to be supplied, however, and these de
cided on turning a blotter they found in the room into checker board,
which was immediately done, a dance program which hung on the wall being
cut up for use as checkers.
The nonassenting member of the jury and one other decided upon a
sleep There was no further deliberation on the case, the Jurors continuing
to play tfceh* games and sleep until the opening of court the next morning
when they rrported to Judge Neterer that they were unable to agree, and tliej
